This is a major alert. A top Republican has been removed — Congress just made the call. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continues to run headlong into corruption.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ), who chairs the House Freedom Caucus, accused the Democrats of excluding conservatives from key, closed-door testimony in their farcical impeachment inquiry on President Trump.
It is being reported that Republican members were disallowed from making comment during testimony from a former aide to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo — and even a request to view a transcript on a former guest was turned down.
Biggs said, “If you were to have a formal impeachment inquiry, you wouldn’t be having Soviet style secret hearings. Normally every member of Congress can go into any committee hearing that’s ongoing.”
“You can’t do that here, because we’re not allowed in,” continued Biggs. He is, of course, making the salient point that at least with a full House vote on whether an impeachment inquiry should be opened, every member could be involved.
In fact, Article 1, Section 2, of the Constitution states that the House of Representatives “shall have the sole Power of Impeachment,” and this means all of the people’s representatives, not just a handful of politicians or one party.
